. of course, she's not going away mad. so there are ways in which barack obama could continue to tap her or tap her husband in some -- in some foreign policy issue. i wouldn't think that's impossible looking ahead for this term. >> susan, secretary clinton was asked about a possible run in that interview in 2016. we have to play that. >> and i don't think, you know, either he or i can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year. >> but she also laughed earlier in that interview when they were touching on that very issue. steve croft was saying, you know, how long will the president's endorsement last? and so amid the reports of joe biden as you were talking about that and his possible presidential bid in 2016, could the president be forced to choose between the two here? >> you know, traditionally presidents have not weighed in on the nomination battle that follows them. i would assume that president obama might well follow that path. it's probably a wise one. i wouldn't be surprised if you saw barack obama and joe biden doing a joint interview at some point i

communication. we saw it both in the success of the obama campaign in the fund raising arena and seen it in the ability of people to galvanize around a particular issue. that's what's so important about all of these things, the twitter and facebook. we use it extensively and it's a huge force. >> congressman yarmuth, thanks so much for taking the time. >> thank you, chris. >> as we watch gabby giffords continuing to come in. there is this level of emotion here. and really newtown took it to a level i don't think we've seen before. the parents have a piece in the "washington post," our country needs a new dialogue, one that doesn't follow the tired script of political squabbling. any improvement of our laws should not be decried as an attempt to take away rights. even those who lost the most are suggesting no such thing. >> do we need to see gabby giffords coming in and reminder of these 20 kids? >> apparently we do. there is a strong gun lobby and they oppose these things strongly. >> are they as strong as they were? >> i think so. there's been a lot of talk the nra is waining, i thin

collection. zales is the diamond store. let love shine. >>> president obama is stepping up pressure to pass an immigration reform bill. the president said he'd like a bill on his desk as early as june. >> really the issue here is not so much technical as it is political. it's a matter of republicans and democrats coming together and finding a meeting of the minds and then making the case. i'd like to see if we can get it done sooner in the first half of the year if possible. >> there does seem to be some momentum. there are also roadblocks, some conservatives pushing back despite efforts by republican marco rubio to sell a bipartisan senate plan. >> i love and respect marco. i think he's just amazingly naive on this issue. this is the same old formula that we've dealt with before including when it passed in 1986, and that is promises of enforcement and immediate amnesty. and, of course, the promises of enforcement never materialize. the amnesty happens immediately. >> let's bring in b.e.t. columnist keith boykin and msnbc contributor robert traynham. it's no coincidence the president spoke

this morning, "many democrats want to use the immigration issue to drive turnout in election after election. their goal is to have a legislative dance and then blame republicans for killing reform some time in 2014. mr. obama will have to decide if he wants a legacy of reform or more partisanship." and i'm wondering, raul, is him getting involved, and the way in which he gets involved, very tricky for him? >> yes, it is tricky. but at the same time, he has to get involved. one of the things that latino voters, one of the key reasons they turned out in record numbers is that they wanted immigration reform, they wanted to see the president do something. and there has been some criticism of him in the path, particularly around health care, that he was somewhat aloof in the process. he didn't step in and lead. i think this time, he has taken a more forceful nmu!"t/&nuuuuuu. what his challenge is#82+suur]bk the big numbers come when you look at non-whites. 67% of back a path to citizenship. while just 46% of whites do. is one of the keys for the president, david, going to be what he's kind of do

closely with all of you, as we tackle some of the toughest issues and challenges that i have seen in the entire time i have served on this committee. and i particularly welcome the new members in that regard. i'm very grateful to president obama for nominating me and entrusting me with this important responsibility. and i am particularly grateful to secretary clinton, senator mccain, and senator warren for their introductions of me just now. i will not take it personally that this may be the one item in washington that seems to unite democrats and republicans to get me out of the senate quickly. secretary clinton particularly has served above and beyond the call of duty. i think everybody on this committee would agree. her service has been superb, and we all thank her for a job well done, for her tireless efforts on behalf of our nation. she has set a very high mark for the stewardship of the state department and her commitment to country. and i can pledge to you that with the consent of the senate, i will do everything in my power, soummon every energy and all of my focus to buil
